The Herald reports that former Cabinet ministers Walter Mzembi and Saviour Kasukuwere, who are believed to be in South Africa, are at the centre of an attempt to push for regime change in Zimbabwe.
The publication further reports Mzembi has recruited South African-based Zimbabwe businessman Mutumwa Mawere, as well as political activists Mr Dhewa Mavhinga and Miriam Mutizwa, in his quest for regime change through engagement with the United States and the European Union.

The duo also wants to use South African opposition party, the Economic Freedom Fighters led by Julius Malema. The Herald says this is contained in a leaked WhatsApp conversation between Mzembi and Mawere. Although The Heraldd could not get a comment from Mzembi, Mawere acknowledged the chat but denied that their discussion was about regime change. Said Mawere:
